Starting school in September 2021...

Would you like to join our Bignold family? We are a school that puts children at the heart of all we do. Unfortunately this year we can not do in-person visits to show you around but we have a number of ways in which we can share our ethos with you. 

We are a School of Sanctuary and we are proud of our warm welcome to all families. If this is your first look at Bignold why not take a virtual tour to experience a flavour of what a day in Reception might be like?

We encourage all children to thrive at Bignold by combining a child-led approach matched with adult-directed teaching. We are a reading school and use the Talk 4 Writing approach to enthuse children to become confident readers and writers.

Being outdoors has always been a key element to our provision and we have recently developed our outdoor learning environment further. If you are considering Bignold Primary School,Preschool and Nursery as the first step on your child's learning journey and you have any questions please contact the school office on 01603 625721 or email any questions to

We look forward to welcoming you and your child soon.
